The second season of The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor.
This manga was the best manga I've ever read. After dismissing it a few times, I finally got a solid recommendation and picked it up. After the first couple chapters I realized it was gold! Funny, edgy, hip solid story line, amazing art, fun pacing, character develpoment was sparce,but still intruiging. I found my stomach aching from laughing at the characters in the story, I found myself rooting for the protagonist in a way that was uncommon for other stories. While season one was an over all better story, season two was a rollercoaster of peaks and valleys. Excellent, and underrated read.
Weed is an entertaining character--a duplicitous penny-pincher who is outwardly charismatic and friendly, but inwardly only thinks about how fe can use people to maximize feir own benefits. People also underestimate fem because fe has leveled up non-combat skills like Cooking, Fishing, Sewing, Blacksmithing, and Sculpting. My favorite sections are feir travels with Mapan (chs. 9-19) and feir powering up of skills (chs. 40-43, 46-49). The Morata quest (chs. 21-37) is a duller point in the series, though the quests after chapter 49 aren't exactly the best either--several of them just feel like excuses to have fem fight alongside some of the new side characters (namely, Hwa-Ryung, Zephyr, and the Swordnoobs) and to have the old party make an appearance. The tomb-building quest (ch. 59-61) was building up to be something cool, but then just ended somewhat anticlimactically. The Swordnoob subplot is alright, but not great or anything. I'm usually just wanting to get through those sections and get back to the parts with Weed. I liked Mapan as a supporting character (and I'm glad fe didn't outstay feir welcome), Van Hawk is pretty adorable, and Maylon seems like fe'll be a cute addition to the ensemble. It made sense for Dain to not play a role during this second season of the story because of feir circumstances, but I felt that Seo Yoon should've been included in at least a subplot or something (rather than just getting a scene here or there). The Dark Gamer Association has been introduced, but so far they haven't played a role in anything. Summary: I like the story. It has some flaws, but is still very entertaining and I look forward to reading Season 3.
I loved season 1. But the artstyle change seems a little low quality in season 2 so i was disappointed. Not to mention theres always this reoccurance of female leads--suddenly falling in love?? Which isn't bad but i feel like it ruins the rich appeal that season 1 worked so hard to build up. If romance is placed well and adds to the story i think it can be great. I just think it was a little unnecessary in the very beginning of season 2. The reason i enjoyed season 1 over 2 was mainly because it showed this group of friends battling together. I have temporarily dropped LMS because of season 2. I don't know if its maybe cause im "immature" but the first few chapters of this season ruined the experience for me a bit.The other reviews say otherwise that season 2 is great. For someone like me i prefer more action focused stories. Hopefully one day i might pick this up again and power through the first half of season 2.Art can be subjective and i know everyone has their own opinion, but as an artist myself seeing the same repetitive manwha/manhua style can be boring and a little dull. If they got the same artist from season 1 to draw season 2 and three i'd be content.
